Full mount + best mount option for dropbox + windows folder

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

high cpu usage

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

rclone v1.57.0

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)


The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone mount --vfs-cache-mode=full --cache-dir=Z:\temp dd13:/ k: --multi-thread-streams 30 --low-level-retries 2 --retries 2 --vfs-read-chunk-size 128K --buffer-size off --max-backlog 20000 --fast-list --no-traverse --no-modtime --read-only --log-level INFO --stats 1m --network-mode --vfs-cache-max-age 15m

Hello to everyone,
firstly i am begineer i spend around 5 days for find this option. i have 3 questions;

1-when i use full mount my cpu going to %100 usage. ofcourse if i did not touch files cpu going back to normal. what can i do for cpu problem?

2- i just wonder about your exp with dropbox. ofcourse i know rclone mount code will be diffrent for everyjob but any best command for you? maybe i will try that.

3- I want to assign more numbers than letters to the disks I mount. I saw an article for this, but I couldn't manage it. How exactly can I do this? can you show me an example? because i'm really a beginner.

i am greatful your help.

  1. please post the full output of rclone version
  2. unless you are 1000% sure you know exaclly what each flag does, i would remove it.
    for example,
    --- --fast-list - does nothing on a rclone mount
    --- --max-backlog is that there for a specifc reason for that?
    --- --no-traverse - pretty sure that does nothing on a rclone mount.
  3. the Z: drive, is that local or a net share?
  4. using a log with DEBUG not INFO will provide a deeper look into what rclone is doing.

i never mount to drive letters, only folders, for example,

rclone mount remote1: b:\rclone\remote1
rclone mount remote2: b:\rclone\remote2
rclone mount remote9999: b:\rclone\remote9999

rclone version
rclone v1.57.0

  • os/version: Microsoft Windows Server 2022 Standard Evaluation 2009 (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 10.0.20348.169 (x86_64)
  • os/type: windows
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.17.2
  • go/linking: dynamic
  • go/tags: cmount

2- i have no idea about that command i just find them on internet i can delete them no problem!

3- z drive is ram disk on local.

4- can you write a command please? do you mean -vv?
is that help us for cpu usage?

5- i find that command on rclone web page but i really dont understand how can i use that.
can you explain a little bit more for me please? example b:/rclone/remote1 is that already generated folder? or rclone generate it?

what do you mean to do with the rclone mount?
--- store media files that will you will stream to local?
--- copy local files to cloud for backup?
--- ???

hello again, i am sorry for late answer and i am greatful about your support.

when i try download data to pc cpu going to %100 thats my basic problem

that is documented here
"a path representing a non-existent subdirectory of an existing parent directory"

try a simple command like this and test cpu usage when downloading.
rclone mount dd13: k: --read-only

and make sure to use latest stable version of winfsp

hello again,
i am afiraid change my command.
i find this on forum.


but thats not working for me.

i did not try that but i find this too.

maybe tps-limit is work for me?

does nothing on a rclone mount

imho, just adding/removing flags is not the way to go about this.

i shared the simplest rclone mount command possible,
test with that, establish a baseline for cpu usage.

i guess i solve cpu spending for now.
honestly i have tons of questions. You probably hate me :slight_smile:

when i try use this command i receive error. if you have time can you give me a hand please?

rclone mount remotedd13: C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\New\remotedd13 --vfs-cache-mode=full --cache-dir=Z:\temp dd13:/ --multi-thread-streams 30 --drive-chunk-size 7M --low-level-retries 2 --retries 2 --max-backlog 20000 --fast-list --no-traverse --no-modtime --read-only --log-level INFO --stats 1m --network-mode --vfs-cache-max-age 15m --ignore-checksum --transfers=2 --tpslimit 10

Command mount needs 2 arguments maximum: you provided 3 non flag arguments:

i cannot see into your screen.

run the command, post the full output including the error message, enclose it with three backticks so it is formated like so.

rclone mount remotedd13: C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\New\remotedd13 --vfs-cache-mode=full --cache-dir=Z:\temp dd13:/ --multi-thread-streams 30 --drive-chunk-size 7M --low-level-retries 2 --retries 2 --max-backlog 20000 --fast-list --no-traverse --no-modtime --read-only --log-level INFO --stats 1m --network-mode --vfs-cache-max-age 15m --ignore-checksum --transfers=2 --tpslimit 10

thank you for amazing support man!

i really spend big effort for ''' but i failed. lol

you have two remotes in the command, choose one and remove the other.
